Reading, Listening

Mulk Raj Anand's Across the Black Waters. The blurb said this was arguably the best war novel written by an India, and for Rs.30, quite a steal.

A. R. Rahman's latest - Rang De Basanti. The title track sung by Daler Mehndi is fantastic. And overall, what I really enjoy about Rahman's music is the arrangement. What's more, Rahman's music almost always begins narrating a story well before the film hits the screen. By the time you're done listening to the entire album, you have some sense of the narrative high points of the film.
